This new incarnation of the former Cathay Hotel into a top-end luxury hotel is the property's first major renovation and refurbishment in decades, notes Eugene Tan, who is spearheading the refurbishment. The Edison George Town will have 35 rooms, with two of the biggest suites ranging from 58-61 square metres each. The hotel will also have a lounge, courtyard, library, and pool.
MALAYSIA will see its eighth Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) property open next month, this time in Penang. It's a first for the state, which has seen its real estate prices and values in George Town soar since its 2008 Unesco heritage listing.
